There are more than 200,000 people going through cancer or surviving after cancer in Ireland right now. Every 3 minutes in Ireland someone gets a cancer diagnosis. Incidence of cancer is growing and by 2020, 1 in 2 of us will get a cancer diagnosis in our lifetime. In Ireland an average of 40,000 new cases of cancer are diagnosed each year.*

Facing a cancer diagnosis as a patient or the close friend/family member of one is a very scary and intimidating time. Most people turn to the internet for information on their illness and very quickly find themselves buried in a sea of medical jargon, frightening statistics and worst-case scenarios, all of which adds to, not lessens, the burden.

Many online support resources offer practical advice, which is very relevant and useful, but where Happy Magazine comes in is to offer what they also want to find but can’t seem to – how to be happy again after a diagnosis. So, solutions to all their new health challenges, advice from those who have been there before them, instructions for getting through the challenge of cancer, plans for their new normal and support on how to be happy again.

All of our content is positive and helpful, inspiring and motivating. Happy Magazine is how to live a happy life after a cancer diagnosis. Regular topics include Beauty, Food, Wellness and much more.

Our innovative support website is delivered in a ‘bite-size’ way – three posts a week – just enough for someone who is tackling a tough time and who may not have the headspace for a lot of reading.

Happy Magazine also publishes online so that it forms an ongoing support resource, there for a patient or their friend/family member every single day – because dealing with and surviving cancer is there every single day, not just on the days someone is able to get to a cancer support centre.
